Auspicious Vastu Tips for Entrance/Main Door [DO’s & DON’Ts]

Vastu Shastra has great importance for entrance door in a home, as this is the place from where energies, either positive or negative, enter and exit a house. Having said this, it is obvious that if more negative energies are entering a home from main door then people in the house will not prosper. On the other hand if more positive energy is entering a home then the residents will prosper.

Before you read any further, I assume that you already are aware of vastu shastra. If not, I recommend you to read our article which introduces you to vastu shastra so that you know and understand vastu in a better way.

Main Door Entrance VastuNow, let’s continue our discussion on main entrance vastu; the most important part regarding entrance door of a home is direction, hence before looking at other vastu tips for main door, I want you to have a look at auspicious directions for entrance in a house.

Main or Entrance Door Vastu – Effect of Directions

North:- If you want to locate the entrance door in North wall of a home, then make sure the door is in North-East section of North wall. The reason for this is to allow morning sun (UV Rays for purification), fresh light and air to enter the home from East. Also keep the door towards center of wall (not exactly at center) and locate a window near North-East corner.  Update: More on north facing house @ North Facing House Vastu Shastra 

South:- If you want to locate entrance of a home in South wall, then locating the door towards South-East is auspicious; avoid having the door at center or South-West portion of wall. For all houses having main door in South direction, it’s must to have another door in North direction also.  Update: More on South facing house @ South Facing House Vastu Shastra 

East:- To locate main entrance door in East wall, vastu suggests keeping it in North-East part.  Update: More on East facing house @ East Facing House Vastu 

West:- North-West half of West wall is more suitable for main entrance as per vastu.  Update: More on West facing house @ West Facing House Vastu 

The below diagram helps you identify best locations for entrance door for a house as per vastu shastra.

Vastu For Main Entrance Door

Having located directions for main entrance as per vastu shastra, let’s have a look at more vastu tips for main door.

Vastu Tips for Main or Entrance Door: What to Do

  1. Make the main door of a home the largest door.
  2. A two shuttered main door opening inside and clockwise is auspicious.
  3. Use very good quality wood for main entrance.
  4. Make sure that main door is noise free while opening or closing.
  5. Always keep entrance door well lit with bright lights.
  6. Make sure to have a beautiful name plate (Amazon India, Amazon US) on entrance of a home; this attracts prosperity, wealth and happiness.
  7. Have a threshold at main door; it makes sure that you avoid loss of wealth.
  8. Always have some beautiful design and paint on main door. In other words avoid keeping main door dull and drab.
  9. Make the main door a bit higher than ground level and keep number of steps odd.
  10. Main door must be above ground level and not below in any case.
  11. Best option is to have two main doors in a home, one for entry and another for exit having two and one shutters respectively.
  12. Make exit door smaller than entrance one.
  13. Locate entrance at least a feet away from any corner.
  14. Immediately replace cracked or aged doors to avoid tough time and loss of respect.
  15. Make sure that total number of door and windows in a house are even (e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8 etc.) and not end with 0 (such as, 10, 20, 30 etc.

Vastu Tips for Main or Entrance Door: What to Avoid

  2. Avoid having main door facing directly to another home’s main entrance.
  3. Avoid main door directly facing a compound wall.
  4. Avoid underground tank, septic tank etc. under a home’s main door.  Update: More on Septic tank Vastu @ Septic Tank Vastu  
  5. Avoid any shadows on main door especially shadows of other buildings, plants etc.
  6. Don’t keep shoes in front of main entrance, keep them at a side.
  7. Don’t keep garbage or dustbin near main entrance as they emit negative energy.
  8. Avoid automatic closing main doors.
  9. Avoid main entrance facing intersecting roads.
  10. Avoid main door at center of any wall.
  11. Avoid black color for main door.
  12. Avoid temples or any other religious place directly in-front of main entrance.
  13. Avoid obstructing things like poles, trees, wires etc, in front of main entrance.
  14. Avoid arched windows and doors as they distort positive energy pattern.

I sincerely hope that you will follow these vastu tips for entrance and main door and make your home entrance a very auspicious one.

P.S. – In most houses, main door leads to living room of the home. Since you have finish understanding main door vastu, I suggest you to read our article on living room vastu and understand how you can do vastu for your living room or if you want to apply vastu to your home in a step by step manner than head right to the article @ Vastu for home and start learning.

Special Attention:
It has, somehow, become a “common misconception” that all South facing houses are bad, however, that’s not truly the case.

In fact, as per vastu shastra, a South facing house can really be very auspicious, if and only if, it follows very certain vastu principles & guidelines.

However, if a South facing house isn’t as per vastu rules, then it tends to become the most inauspicious house that you can ever have.

More information on this is available @ South facing house vastu

  • Hi Michelle,

    So the house is a diagonal house with the entrance facing NW and there’s another door in SE of the house.

    I am attaching an image of a diagonal house as per vastu shastra. Hope that helps you.

    Also, please send me a layout (or sketch) of your home; this way it’ll be more detailed and better to understand.

    Regarding consultation, I am just trying to help people who have issues and problems (because of improper vastu shastra) in their life. I don’t charge anything for this. It’s all free.

    Please feel free to ask further questions.

  • Hi Pratik,

    This is a good entrance and the house plan is also very good. The only concern is the kitchen; it must be in the SE. If you can swap the SE bedroom and kitchen it’ll be great.

  • Hi Abhishek,

    If the distance of the pole and your shop’s entrance is more than twice the height of your shop’s door then it’s not a vastu defect.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • Namaste Michelle,

    What I can understand is that you’re planning to make an entrance from the SW of the house; if yes, the please don’t do that as SW is the worst entrance for the house.

    Also a SE entrance brings illness to the residents. Yes and entrance in NW (more on North) is better.

    Hi Gaurav,

    Many people believe that having a statue of God at the entrance is good. However, at the same time we must also consider that the back of that statue is facing our home. As a remedy get one more statue and place it in such a way that both the statues are back to back and then the new one will face towards your home.

    Hi Sarat Kumar K,

    I can understand that it’s difficult to find a house that’s as per vastu shastra (that too in US). I am attaching an image of ideal diagonal house (as those are the ones that you’re finding there).

    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Varun,

    Out of all the combinations that you’ve sent me, the best one is when you face North while moving out of the house. I am not saying that it was perfect as per vastu, but it had far less severe defects that the other ones.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Varun,

    As you mentioned this is an East facing apartment; this means that the kitchen is in SW and that’s a huge vastu defect. You can apply the remedies but they may not save you from the damage. Also there’s a bedroom in NE and bathroom in exact East. All these vastu defects make it a bad house as per vastu shastra.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Sarat,

    This one is a tad bit better than the other one. However, since you don’t own this property, I’ll suggest you to look for better options as this one still has some major vastu defects such as toilets in exact NE. Kitchen towards SW etc.

    Vastu Tip: Try to find a property that is exact or almost in the North-South axis and not diagonal ones like these.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi John Mary,

    The main door facing the entrance of opposite home is actually a vastu dosha. For this, you can place OM, SWASTIK and Trishul, or Lord Ganesha’s image on the main door.

    Having a Shiva Temple near your home isn’t a vastu dosha untill it’s (the temple’s) shadow doesn’t falls on your home.

    You can send me the layout of your home for further analysis.
    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Sarat,

    The plan that you’ve sent me is not good as per vastu shastra. Can you send me the other (mirror image) plan as I can’t see much in the smaller black & white image.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Padmanabham,

    You can shift the entrance to the place as shown in the layout.
    It’ll be good to have guest room door at NE.

    As per vastu shastra, a borewell’s best location is the NE part (which is, in your case), but even in the NE part the borewell cannot be in the corner. In the NE the borewell can be either towards North or towards East at 3rd pada.

    To understand pada read our article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-facing-house-vastu/
    (this article is about South facing house, but it will tell you about how to make padas).

    Now, to make padas in North and East side. Start marking from NE to NW and NE to SE.
    The NE pada is numbered1 and the NW and SE ones are numbered 9.

    The borewell can be located in 3rd pada either in North or East side.

    Also, I am attaching an image for your reference. The boxes marked in blue is the ideal location for borewell in NE. Hope it helps you.

    Hi Mahesh,

    As per vastu shastra, this is a defect, but since the entrance is in the NE,I think it may not be inauspicious.

    Hi Varun,

    While exiting out of the house you face West; this means that this is a West facing house.

    The door and windows (if any) towards the “deck” must have dark colored curtains.

    Rest looks ok.

    Hi Vahi,

    For Plan A: When you enter the house, you are facing south west direction this means that it’s a NE facing house.

    For Plan B: When you enter the house, you are facing north east direction that means it’s SW facing house.

    As per vastu shastra, a SW facing house is the most inauspicious one hence plan B is rejected based on the entrance itself.

    Coming to Plan A the NE facing one; There’s a kitchen in NE and a toilet in North and these both are huge vastu defects which may lead to financial troubles.

    For NE kitchen you can read @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-remedies-north-east-kitchen/

    and for North toilet, try to use it as a bathroom only and keep sea salt in it in a bowl and change the salt once a week. More on this @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/north-east-vastu-dosh-remedies/

    However, since you don’t own the property, if you can, then, please look for better options.

    Thanks,

    Hi Aditi,

    Is this is a West facing house? Means when you’re coming out of the house, you face West. Please confirm.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Varun,

    If you’re facing North while coming out of the house, it means that it’s a North facing one.

    The kitchen is in SE and that’s good. The master bedroom in SW is good.

    There’s a toilet towards the North and that’s not good. The commode in the NW bedroom is in East-West axis and that’s a vastu dosh.
    Try to use that toilet as bathroom and place sea salt in that toilet in a bowl. Change the sea salt at least once a week.

    There are a few cuts and extensions in your home, as a remedy, place 4 vastu pyramids, one each in North, East, West and South of your home.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Rajat,

    For bathroom vastu defect, a simple remedy is to place sea salt in a bowl in the bathroom and change the salt at-least once a week.

    For cuts, you have to place 4 pyramids one in North, another in South, 3rd in West and last one in East.

    Also, please send a layout of your home for further analysis.

    Hi Rajat Singh,

    As per vastu shastra, a main gate in North direction is very auspicious. However, you must also remember that, the main gate must lie in the 5th pada i.e. 5th pada must be the part of main door and 4th, 3rd and 2nd can also be part of main door (if 5th pada aloe does not suffice).

    In order to calculate pada read our article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-facing-house-vastu/ (this article is about South facing house, but it tells how to identify padas).

    In North side you must mark the padas from NE to NW i.e. start 1st pada from NE side and 9th will be one the NW side.

    Feel free to ask any questions.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • Rajat singh

      Thank you so much admin/vastusashtraguru for bringing light and showing the possibility of what can be done. Only thing I wanted to make sure that even if i shift my gate from 5th pada till 2nd pada starting point then also 20% of my gate (N-E corner side)will fall opposite to the apartment gate which is just opposite to my house. As I have mentioned earlier my house is north facing. Thanx!!

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Rajat Singh,

        20% should not be a problem. Since you have a house and not a flat, I will suggest you to get a vastu consultant at your place and get the slope of your plot assessed.

        Thanks,
        Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Suman,

    The main door is ok, however, there’s a toilet in North and that’s not a good sign.

    Change the salt at-least once a week.

    Hi Arc,

    Apply the remedies that I’ve mentioned above and try to meditate whenever possible at-least once a day for 30 mins.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Arc,

    If you face SW when you enter the house means that the house is NE facing.

    Our article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-shastra-directions/
    will help you to understand more on directions in vastu shastra.

    Now, assuming that the home is NE facing, I can see that
    1. there’s a toilet in East (that’s a vastu defect)
    2. the kitchen is in North-North-East (that’s again a vastu defect and leads to financial problems)
    3 SW is living room, again a vastu defect
    4. There’s a cut in North part, that’s again a vastu defect.

    By the way, since this is not your own home, then you must try to relocate.

    For time being, apply following remedies:
    1. Keep sea salt in toilets in bowl and change the salt regularly (at least weekly)
    2. For kitchen, read http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-remedies-north-east-kitchen/
    3. For SW living room, try to make it heavier by placing heavy furniture in South and West.
    4. For cut in North, place 1 vastu pyramid in each of North, South, East and West.

    You can get vastu pyramids from amazon via below link:

    A tilted door leads to financial troubles. Place Om, Swastik & Trishul or Panchmukhi Hanuman Ji (with gada in left hand) on the main door. It may reduce the ill effect.

    You can get the Om, Swastik & Trishul from below link:

    Hello Sir,

    Thanks for providing very valuable and interesting info on vastu. It is a 3 bedroom house with 2 levels. Level has family, living room, kitchen, washroom (1/2 bathroom with sink and toilet) and car garage. Level 2 has a master bedroom with attached bath, and 2 bedroom, laundry room, 2 bathroom.

    I’ve been living in this house for past 10 years and my gut feeling says it’s not a good one. I am facing lot of instability in job and income. Please advice if the entrance is an issue.

    The main entrance is facing east. However the main door is bit tilted as you can see from the layout. I would like to get your advice on the main entrance of my house. Please let me know if this is vaastu compliant.

    Thx

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Red Wood,
      As per the layout that you’ve sent, your’s is a diagonal house. I am attaching layout of an ideal diagonal house with the comment. That’ll help you.

      Also, correct the tilt of the main door by making it similar to other doors.

      Thanks,
      Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Aditi D,

    As per vastu shastra, the most important thing is the entrance.

    If you’re getting options to stay in only South facing houses, chances are that you’re currently living in a South facing house.

    Now, it doesn’t mean that all South facing houses are bad. There is a vastu arrangement that makes a South facing house very auspicious.

    Hi Madhu J,

    Yes, the master bedroom in SE is actually not recommended.
    However, there’s another bedroom in SW and that can be used as master bedroom.

    Thanks,

  • Madhu J

    Hi Sir, first of all thanks a lot for providing excellent information on the site and prompt reply to the questions asked. I am attaching three floor maps of the apartments and I have confusion in confirming one! Can you please suggest the best apartment among the three! Please. I have three options 1. East Facing 2. North Facing and 3. South Facing which is converted into East facing(i.e. South-East). Please help me in choosing the best vastu complaint apartment to live. Three apartment floor plan is attached along with this message. Eagerly Waiting for the reply.

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Madhu J,

      If I have to choose one, I’ll go for the North facing one.

      Thanks,
      Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Raj,

    A closed North may lead to financial troubles (yes the roof top window may help), however, you can read our vastu tips to attract wealth and follow them. Here’s the link: http://www.vastushastraguru.com/21-vastu-tips-for-wealth-gain-money-get-rich/

    Swap the locations of kitchen and WC.

    Here is the initial sketch from the architect which we can change but cannot change the location of staircase and cannot open any wall on North, however on top floor we can have roof top windows which will face to north direction. We are considering to bring kitchen in front instead of WC (Toilet) and put the cooking gas on the east open window and move the WC after small store room which will come after kitchen. Planning to put WC on South wall or middle wall towards north which is shown as 4 X blocks. My biggest concern is about north being closed except one roof top windows.

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Raj,

      Move the kitchen in the SE corner (current location of WC) and face East while cooking.
      Also staircase in North is not good as per vastu shastra. You can put 2 metal turtles under the 1st step of the stairs as a remedy.

      Here’s the link for metal turtles:

      Also make sure to keep the master bedroom in the top floor in SW.

    As per vastu shastra, toilet in SW is a huge vastu defect and usually leads to financial troubles.

  • Sarat Kumar K

    First thanks for the detailed information on this website.

    I am planning to buy a house whose floor plan I am attaching here. As it is a diagonal plan, I am not sure if the main entrance is good or bad. Can you please suggest if the house is according to the vastu guidelines and if there are remedies that can be taken?

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Sarat Kumar,

      I’m glad that you like the information on our website.

      The main entrance is ok. However, there are other things that seems out of place.

      Here’s an ideal diagonal house as per vastu shastra. Hope it helps you.

      Feel free to ask further questions.

      Thanks,
      Admin

      • Sarat Kumar K

        Thanks for your prompt reply. So from your benchmark diagram, a lot of things seem to be out of place in the flat. Can you please provide your assessment as to whether any remedies exist that can be incorporated to make the flat good, or the deviations are too many from the principles, that I should not go ahead with the purchase.

        Also, is there a paid service for vastu consultancy that you offer in Bangalore so that I can have the place physically assessed?

        • VastuShastraAdmin

          Hi Sarat Kumar,
          As there are lots of deviations, I’d suggest you to check for better options.

          As far as vastu consultancy is concerned I am just trying to help as many people as I can and my services are right here on this website; all the help is honorary.

          Feel free to ask any more questions, whenever you
          have them.

          Thanks,
          Admin

          • Sarat Kumar K

            Thank you Sir, for your suggestions. I will look for other options and will sure consult you. Hope that should be fine.

    Hi Sameer,

    For South facing office or home, if the entrance is not in 4th pada (or step) then it’s a problem.

    Read more on pada (step) calculation @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-facing-house-vastu/

    However, what the type of company is it? Is it manufacturing or service based?

    Similar thing goes for your friend too. It’s not about the South facing house, it’s about where the entrance is located in South facing house/office.

    Once we know the entrance location, then we can go for remedies.

    Feel free to ask further questions.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Creation,

    The best remedy is to have a Panchmukhi Hanuman Ji. You can put metal one or pic anything. However, metals ones are more expensive.

    You can get Panchmukhi Hanuman Ji from amazon via below link.

    Yes, the entrance of your home seems to be in the wrong part of South facing house.

    You can read more about South facing houses @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-facing-house-vastu/

    As far as the second image is concerned, it’s actually a feng shui lion with a sword in it’s mouth. It’s basically used to guard the house from extremely negative and very dangerous energies.

    Hello,
    I am in a rental house, which I am in no position to change at this time. We have a very wrong faced entrance which we did not know until we actually shifted in this house. Someone told that we have a wrong entrance…thats when I started to look for vaastu shastra and came to know about the directions and all…

    My landlord has put a shastra type (as second image very similar but with a dagger or knife in mouth – this is just a reference not actual picture – could not find anything on internet that was same)

    Our financial position has indeed worsened as if someone is draining the finances….Please HELP!!

    – Sad

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Creation,
      Please mark a direction (either North, South, East or West) of your home diagram for further analysis.

      Thanks,
      Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi James,

    North facing house is very good for finance.
    For the staircase, you can put 2 metal turtles (approx 5″ dia.) under the lowest step of the staircase, this will mean that the weight of the staircase is borne by turtle shell and not by Vastu Purusha.

    For neighbor’s door, if you can, then paste an image of Lord Ganesha on your door such that the image of Lord Ganesha faces the door of neighbor.

    You can get turtles from amazon.com using the link below:

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Atul,

    That’s all probably due to the SW entry of the home. As per vastu shastra, the SW entry is considered to be inauspicious.

    Actually, the SW corner is meant for master bedroom and since the entry of your home is from SW this means that the master bedroom in your home is not in SW corner.

    You will find remedies to SW entrance @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/

    However, do remember that any remedy may reduce the effect but won’t eliminate the defect completely.

    Hi Mahesh,

    It has to be a solid silver or copper wire of 1mm or 6.25 mm dia.

    It must be put under the ground.
    Make sure not to do this on Tuesday.

    Thanks,

      Sir, whether it has to ground all four sides or only extended side. Please let me know. Thank you sir.

        Put the wire in such a way that the extended portion of your home is outside.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Arti,
    Here are some simple vastu remedies that you can apply:

    1. Place the gas stove in SE or NW corner of kitchen and face E or W while cooking.

    2. In the South East room (the actual place of kitchen) keep a stool and cook something daily, such as, boil rice, make tea etc. This will create an auxiliary kitchen at correct location.

    3. While sleeping in NW and SE bedroom make sure to keep head in S or W direction and sleep in SW corner.

    4. For SW entrance you can read our article @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/

  • Vihang Deota

    Hello sir..
    I am currently in US, and i just have the following two apt plans to rent from. Can you please suggest me the best possible direction to map to these plans ??

    Please mark the directions to these floor plans…

    Thank you !!

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Vihang,

      It’s you only who can mark directions to these plans. Yes, once you’ve marked the directions, we can tell you whether the house is as per vastu shastra or not.

      Thanks,
      Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Arti,

    As you told that this is a S facing house, I can see that the main door of the house is more towards the W side of the house and that’s very bad as per vastu shastra.

    Also, I can see that the kitchen is in the SW corner, that too extended and that’s against vastu rules too. SW corner is for master bedroom.

    The kids room is in SE and that may make your kids quarrelsome and bad tempered. The kitchen must be in SE or NW.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Arti,

    Please send a sketch of the house for analysis.

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • Arti parikh

      hii, i am sending you a sketch of house.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Mahesh Kumar,

    The best option is to sell this property and move to a vastu compliant one.

    As per vastu shastra, a remedy, that you can use, is to place a copper or silver wire (6.25 mm or 1.25 mm dia.) in such a way that your house becomes a rectangle and all the extended portions of the house are out of the rectangle.

    Remember that this remedy may reduce the ill-effect but won’t eliminate the defect completely.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Mahesh Kumar,

    From the sketch, that you’ve attached, I can see that the plot of your home is in the shape of a trapezoid.

    This type of plot, as per vastu shastra, is weak and causes unhappiness and loss of wealth.

    Are you facing such issues or some other ones?

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Shyama,

    A staircase in NE is considered inauspicious as per vastu shastra. However, the bore-well location is ok.

    How long have you (and your family) been living in this house? Is it more than 2 years? Are you guys facing any problems related to head? like headache, migraine, tension etc.

    Thanks,

      Hello Sir,

      thanks for your response, actually we are planning to start the construction in January 2015. so we are drawing the layouts in that process we are facing some problems like either dimension will not be comfortable or else doesn’t match vastu.
      after reading your reply i am really scared and planned once again..

      Will you please check and give the suggestions for vastu of the plan that am attaching with this reply. in this the ground floor has 2BHK with car parking and First Floor has 1BHK and 2BHK house.

      Thanks
      Shyama

      • VastuShastraAdmin

        Hi Shyama,

        The house entry that you had earlier was better.
        The staircase position in the new layout is better.
        However, on ground and 1st floor, move the pooja room towards the N or NE side.

        Which direction (clockwise or anticlockwise) are stairs while going up?

        Thanks,
        Admin

        • shyama

          Sir,
          The staircase is in clockwise direction.
          as per your suggestion i have moved pooja room and main door. i have attached plans with this. while moving in the first floor i got 2 ideas so i made plan 1 and plan 2 for first floor..

          I have few more doubts which i have listed below. please give me your suggestions

          1. as per vastu and comfortability which one do you suggest for first floor?

          In ground floor i have not changed much. but sir
          2. whether all other positions are OK? like store/reading room, bath room etc.
          3. can we have utility in N portion where borewell is coming?
          4. also i am planning to keep the gas cylinders below the stairs (outside the house) as it is nearer to kitchen. can we do that as per vastu?
          Thank You

          • VastuShastraAdmin

            Hi Shyama,

            Everything looks good except for the borewell. Actually the borewell in South will drain all the finance from the house.
            The actual location of the borewell can either be in N (as it was in the earlier plan) or in the W.

            Also, the place under a staircase must only be used as a storage. Keeping gas cylinders under the stairs will put pressure on them inviting accidents.

            Apart from all this, the slope of the land plays a very important role in vastu shastra.

            As per vastu shastra the plot must slope from S to N or W to E. Also, the best plot is the one that’s raised at the center and has slopes in all direction (this gives immense wealth, awesome health and great social status).

            Thanks,
            Admin

          • shyama

            Hello Sir,

            Borewell point I have kept at N only. I have not changed the position to west. so i think everything looks good and can go ahead with these Plans.

            Thank You very much Sir. Because of you today i could finish the plan. In all other plans i had some complaints… but Now I am very much satisfied with these latest plans and even I need not care about the people who may tell me to impose changes to the existing plan.. Thank You once again. If i get some other doubts I would like to contact you. and even i will suggest your website to my friends and colleagues. its really good, informative and also the most important one – interactive.

  • Manik Sood

    I have 2 questions: 1) How main door with 2 shutters can open in clockwise direction? One can open clockwise and other will open anti-clockwise direction. 2) Threshold at main door to be built with wood, like in the door frame itself or with cement or any other special material?

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Manik,

      You’re correct that in the case of 2 shutter door one will open clockwise and the other one in anticlockwise; but as per vastu shastra, the door on which the handle is placed (for locking the door) must open in clockwise.

      The threshold can be made of wood with the door frame itself or by cement.

      Free Vastu Tip: Make sure that the main door of the home has more height and width than any other door in the home and there’s a ventilator (that opens outside) above the main door.

      Thanks,
